  1. An international viewpoint of human health related guidelines for environmental pollutants.

    Article - En anglais

    Standards have been set and guidelines proposed by many countries and several intergovernmental organizations to determine the acceptable human exposure to certain environmental pollutants in drinking-water and air.

    To compare their values, the concept of Total Personal Exposure is introduced.

    A comparison analysis is presented for trichloroethylene (as one extreme example), showing an unwarranted difference between level values from different sources.

    Such an incompatibility requires a renewed examination of the process and procedure for setting national standards and international guidelines.
